2016 Château Haut-Beauséjour Saint-Estèphe
James Suckling 93: A generous and round-textured red here. Full to medium body. Juicy and fruity. Pretty young wine — the best from here in a long time.
Decanter 90: Another Pichon Comtesse estate up in St-Estèphe with a lovely ripe fruit expression. There are some tight, austere tannins right now, and the wine is a little less immediately exuberant than some, but give it a few years in bottle to flesh out. 62 percent Merlot, 36 percent Cabernet Sauvignon and 2 percent Petit Verdot.
